TUI has added a second aircraft to its operations at Bournemouth which, according to the airport, means customers will have more choice of holiday destination, duration and flight times.

The Boeing 737-800, which arrived at Bournemouth Airport last week, will increase the frequency of flights to Lanzarote, Heraklion, Ibiza, Menorca, Paphos, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife.

Customers will also now have the option of booking 10 or 11 night holidays in addition to 7 and 14 nights.

Thousands of customers are set to fly from Bournemouth Airport with TUI this summer.

There will be 27 flights per week to 14 different destinations with Palma de Mallorca remaining the most popular choice for travellers.

The second aircraft has doubled TUI’s summer 2024 flying programme from Bournemouth, with more than 70,000 seats to Balearics, more than 60,000 to Greece, more than 40,000 seats to the Canaries and 25,000 seats to Turkey.

Phill Iveson, TUI’s commercial director for the UK and Ireland, said: “TUI has been flying out of Bournemouth for 19 years and during that time demand for Mediterranean holidays has soared in the region.

“With the addition of this new aircraft we’re helping meet that demand and with exclusive routes to Kefalonia and Paphos and more flexible durations we are making sure our customers can travel from their local airport to their ideal holiday destination.”

Steve Gill, Bournemouth Airport’s managing director, added: “We have a long and proud partnership with TUI and are delighted to be welcoming their second aircraft which provides passengers with even more choice and flexibility from their local airport.

“We expect to handle more than one million passengers this year and TUI’s commitment to Bournemouth is a big part of that continued growth.”
